The Nobel Symposia present an opportunity for the Swedish academic community to organise international conferences at the highest scientific level, bringing Swedish researchers in direct contact with the international research frontier. Since the start in 1965, more than 160 Nobel symposia have been held.

The Programme Committee of the Nobel Foundation is the body that formally approves applications to arrange Nobel Symposia. The decisions will be based on proposals from the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences that – from now on – will receive and coordinate the evaluation of proposals for Nobel Symposia in Physics, Chemistry, Physiology or Medicine, and Economic Sciences.

The Academy thus invites the Swedish academic community to propose topics for the Nobel Symposia to be held in 2021. Through major grants from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation and the Erling-Persson Family Foundation, it is now possible to arrange one symposium per year in each of these four fields.
